Why not spend this Friday afternoon at Furstenberg, a lovely and diverse natural area along the Huron River? The 38 acres here offer wetland, woodland, prairie, and oak savanna natural communities. Being so close to the river, any work done to improve the natural environment here will have a lasting impact on the watershed and the wildlife and residents who depend on it. Native plants are powerhouses of filtration and flood mitigation - volunteers can help them thrive by removing invasive weeds from the ground by hand.

Meet at the parking lot off Fuller Rd. Volunteers will pull herbaceous weeds from the ground by hand. Workday sites have unpaved trails and require going off-trail. Preregister through VolunteerHub so NAP can plan on enough staff and supplies for a safe and successful event. For your safety, wear long pants,

About Natural Area Preservation


City of Ann Arbor Parks, Ann Arbor, MI 48105, US

Mission Statement

Natural Area Preservation (NAP) works to protect and restore Ann Arbor's natural areas and to foster an environmental ethic among its citizens. This involves conducting plant and animal inventories, ecological monitoring, and stewardship projects in Ann Arbor parks. These tasks are performed by both staff and volunteers.


Volunteers assist NAP in all aspects of our work, and are vital to NAP's efforts. NAP projects take volunteers well beyond the realm of litter clean-up into working to ​restore and care for natural areas. Through hands-on tasks and scientific knowledge, we encourage a connection between volunteers and their surrounding natural environment. Volunteers play a key role in fostering an environmental ethic in the community. To learn more, visit A2gov.org/NAP
